Campaigning news from the North East
On 30 June, campaigners from the North East celebrated Go North East signing up to our bus charter by holding a Campaign Connect event at Go North East's bus depot in Gateshead.
Darlington volunteer campaigner, Adele Hawkins-Waterfall, went on BBC Radio Tees on Friday 13 May to raise awareness of the challenges she's faced as a parent with sight loss.
RNIB campaigner Joyce Anderson and members of the Northumberland Low Vision Action Group took Mayor of Morpeth, Councillor Alison Byard, on a blindfold walk to highlight the difficulties people with sight loss face every day.
We’re thrilled to announce that Francesca Di Giorgio has joined the Team as Regional Campaigns Officer for the North East.
South Tyneside Council is backing RNIB’s new accessible health information campaign, encouraging NHS and social care providers to meet the information needs of patients with sight loss in the area.
